Employers' Attitudes toward Hearing-Impaired People: A Comparative Study.
Doggett, Gina
Volta Review, v91 n6 p269-81 Oct-Nov 1989
On the basis of speech samples, 13 employers rated the speakers' comprehensibility, independence, likability, respectability, competence, and likelihood that the speaker is a professional. Employers gave the highest ratings to normal-hearing, native speakers of American English, next highest ratings to foreign speakers, and lowest ratings to hearing-impaired speakers. (Author/JDD)
